Revision information
Provide an explanation of the changes you are making. This will help other authors understand your motivations.

This is how it works:

  • Players are organised into groups of up to 8 people of a similar standard
  • Contact details are emailed
  • Players arrange their own matches
  • It is a mixed sex, singles league, so men and women play each other
  • You can play on any court that suits both players

The league is:

  • For everybody!
  • We welcome beginners as well as advanced players.
  • Don't worry that you won't be good enough - playing matches is the best way to improve, and we use an online questionnaire to assess people's ability so you play only people of a roughly similar level
  • Affiliated to the LTA For adults aged 18 years and above 

Key points

  • Matches are best of three sets; if a set reaches 6 games all it is decided by a tiebreak
  • The evening before the round starts you will receive an email with all the contact details of the players in your group
  • Players are placed in groups according to past performance in the league and, for new players, their Player Standard Questionnaire
  • Each player attempts to play each of the other player on their group once during the round
  • If you complete three matches before the midpoint of a round you receive 2 bonus points and a bonus prize (either a pair of Local Tennis Leagues dampeners, or a tube of tennis balls).
  • The winner of the group is the player with the most points at the end of the round
  • The winner of the group wins a certificate and tennis prizes
  • Where possible, winners of groups are promoted to the group above for the next round.

Getting started

New players will need to complete the player questionnaire before they can join a round. Once you’ve signed up, and for returning players you can join any of the upcoming rounds above.

For everything you need to know before you get started see the FAQs and review the Rules and Regulations, which all players agree to adhere to when playing in the leagues.

If there is anything else you need help with get in contact with Nigel, Sally and the team who will be happy to help!

Player Comments:

  • A good match in beautiful weather. A really high quality first set could have gone either way. Lateef got the crucial break on the one and only break point in the entire set, holding on to his own serve consummately to see out the first set. The second set was altogether a lower quality, but still had its moments. There were numerous times where the shot count for points were in the 20+ region, but overall there were more mistakes and errors in the second set, particularly from Al's first serve. Lateef shot into a 3-0 lead and although there were moments of fightback, such as when Al broke Lateef's serve at 4-2 down for the first time, Lateef had the greater consistency and 2nd set quality to see out the win. Well played! -- Alastair

Player Comments:

  • "Another 2.5 hour classic. I have said in previous matches between us that we had literally run each other to a standstill and this was the case here. Sadly after two long stoppages during the sixth game of the final set for cramp, Lateef was unable to continue at its conclusion and had to concede the match. Best of luck in your future matches Lateef."  -- David

Reveal CommentAngus Bearn bt Deepa Ajit (Apr 13) 6-3, 7-5

Player Comments:

  • "Immensely enjoyable match in the sunshine and breeze of Greenwich Park. The score for the first set belies the intensity of competition - which featured a nine-point barren patch for Angus! Deepa laid down innumerable serves at wide angles leaving Angus thrashing to get back into the rallies. But her slightly tentative start firmed in the second with plenty of aggressive shots. (Deepa's speciality: a potent, driving forehand that tickles the net and skims off the deck.) A posse of cyclists on court was at first disconcerting, but they were polite and discreet - happy to see a dual purpose courts! Deepa was into her stride, so a third set would have been terminal for Angus, but he escaped a 15-45 deficit to squeeze through."  -- Angus
Reveal CommentAngus Bearn bt Matteo Merzi (Apr 2) 6-4, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "Excellent, energetic match under gorgeous Sunday evening conditions. Matteo quickly established a 2.0 lead in the first set before Angus struggled into gear. Thereafter Matteo continued to wreak havoc with untouchable aces and absurdly accurate lobs. Ultimately, Angus was able to subvert Matteo's big weapons - the long, looping forehand that pins his opponent to the fence; the flashing serve - by spreading play around the clay surface, with which Matteo was unfamiliar. It is to be doubted whether that could be repeated. "  -- Angus
